Wanna learn about my approach and how I can serve you?:
I’m so excited you found my little corner of the internet! I’m Laura, a fine art film photographer with a background in design and architecture. My creative pursuits led to photography and I began shooting weddings in my hometown of Minneapolis. For over a decade I built a successful business, working with my dream clients and the best of the best planners, florists, and vendors! Even though I had a life and career I loved, I’ve always had a major case of wanderlust, and adventure was calling. In 2018, I followed my heart, packed my worldly possessions into five suitcases, and boarded a plane with my pup and a one way ticket to Honolulu. It was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done in my life, but also one of the best!
Now I spend my days on the most beautiful place on earth. When I’m not busy photographing weddings, elopements, couples, and families, you can find me exploring the Hawaiian islands. I’m obsessed with discovering new hikes, secluded beaches, cruising on my moped, and catching sunrise or sunset as often as I can!
There's no place I'd rather call home.
I don't know what I love more: the satisfaction of creating a delicious meal or trying a new restaurant complete with that perfect cocktail or wine pairing.
I'm obsessed with travel and adventure, and my passport is my most prized possession.
my all-time favs:
as seen in:
I’m a fine art film photographer, known for my clean, timeless style, and beautiful use of natural light. I document your day or your session with a focus on relaxed and natural portraits, and candid moments; all while showcasing that gorgeous Hawaiian backdrop. But the relationship we build begins long before we meet IRL; from the very first email, you can rest assured that I’ll take care of you every step of the way. With over a decade of experience and literally thousands of weddings and sessions under my belt, I know what it takes to get the shot. I’ll help you plan all the details to ensure I capture images that perfectly document your once-in-a-lifetime memories. You’re going to love the experience of working with me as much as you love your photos!
I keep mentioning film on my site. Yes, film! Like the nostalgia of your childhood! It's my medium of choice, and I absolutely adore everything about it! Film photography has a classic, ethereal quality. It radiates warmth.
The best part? When my clients see their photographs, they’ve never felt so beautiful and appreciate all the qualities about film that I love too. And the images will stand the test of time.
Though film is my preference, digital also has a place in my work, as some lighting situations call for the versatility of digital imagery. I carry a full array of the top-of-the-line digital and film equipment with backups. Your images, whatever the format, are edited into a flawless, cohesive story, and you’ll receive high resolution files ready to love, share, and print.
I’m based in Honolulu on the gorgeous Hawaiian Island of Oahu. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to live in tropical island paradise!
Though I call Hawaii home, I’m a born-and-raised Minnesota girl and my ties in Minneapolis are strong! In addition to being a full time photographer, I manage a beautiful studio space, and I own and manage residential rental properties. Most importantly, all my family and oldest friends live in Minnesota! I’m currently booking 2023 and 2024 commissions in both the Hawaiian Islands and the Midwest.
I also travel frequently (42 countries and counting!) and am available for commissions anywhere around the world. My passport is always ready and I’m a frequent flier; well accustomed to fitting copious amounts of camera gear in the overhead bin of even the smallest of planes.
